College Computer Rooms

Desktop Services (DS, also known variously as the MCS or the PWF) - this is a network of computers (both Windows/Linux PCs and Apple Macs) running both popular applications like Microsoft Office, Photoshop, etc. and more specialist teaching packages like SPSS. Desktop Services have a centralised file store (DS-Filestore) so you can save work in your own file space and access it from anywhere in the University. Desktop Services also provide a printing service (DS-Print) where you can buy credit to use the DS:Print printers, both in College and elsewhere.

There are two areas in College with MCS computers available for student use - You will need your CRsID and password to login.
